How would you classify this jacket's chest (lean, swelled, draped)? Keep in mind that this coat is at the basted stage, so it'll gain more shape when concluded.

Hard to tell on a basted fitting. Certainly between lean and swelled. It is all relative to some degree.

I never thought I would see the day when the word "sprezzatura" is printed in large title font on a WSJ section cover page



I am not sure whether to laugh or cry about this

+1. But in a different way. Just ignore it. If the whole magazine landscape doesn't change, we won't get the kind of article that would actually be interesting, so... it just doesn't matter.

I like the teaser line. Is the article a step-by-step guide on how to sprezzatura?

cant think of a better home for this:

there is a strong case that has been made for navy trousers being limiting with regards to the choice of jackets being limited primarily to brown
one further question: what suggestions for jackets when pairing with navy trousers and black shoes?

Honestly not totally opposed to navy odd pants. They can look good in certain situations (however rare). That said, I'd stick to brown loafers or a more casual brown lace-up like a derby if I was wearing them as separates.

Navy odd trousers with black shoes are going to be tough to pair. If you can get a decent amount of contrast in color or texture, a grey odd jacket (which seems to be disliked almost as much as navy odd trousers) might possible work. A cream colored linen jacket in the summer also may work.

Amazing project, which reflects the greatest value of his blog for me: a more adventurous point of view. For example, I'm certainly going to talk about this with my tailor and, perhaps, a nice garment will come up from the inspiration got from Crompton's writings. 

The work on the seams is really great and gives away the bespoke provenance through its preciseness. The only point where I disagree with the intended jacket design is about the hip pockets, the lack of, a leather jacket without (hip) pockets is just not right for me. The sketched pockets were nice and, in my opinion, they would fit within the simplistic design.

The white summer shirt. I thought I was the only one who wears a lot of white shirts in the summer. I have white in different materials including linen, linen/cotton, Zendaline and some other open weaves that I don't know the name.
